The UK-Taiwan Virtual Higher Education Delegation 2020

Why 2021 is the best year yet for UK-Taiwan Higher Education partnerships?

Covid-19 has disrupted virtually all aspects of higher education. The second Taiwan-UK Higher Education Forum, originally scheduled to take place in Taiwan in September 2020, has been postponed until further notice due to travel restrictions and further uncertainties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. As the world emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic, now is an important time to raise awareness of the vital role of higher education partnerships in supporting the Taiwan’s and UK’s plans for economic and social recovery and stability, and to engage in discourse that supports and creates an enabling environment for UK-Taiwan higher education partnerships to take root and flourish.

The UK-Taiwan Virtual Higher Education Delegation 2020 will provide an opportunity to exchange up-to-date information on higher education policy, evaluate the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on teaching and learning, support international strategic networks and share educational as well as international strategies for the post-Covid future.

The virtual delegation will aim to initiate and foster conversations with those who share the common goal of delivering quality education and learning experience to students in the UK and Taiwan. The event will also serve to maintain momentum for a physical delegation from the UK to Taiwan in 2021.

This event will be held online over the course of three days . Alongside a total of six hours of informative, timely content from expert speakers on four separate topic, we will also be providing a number of ways to network, discuss, and make connections with colleagues across the sector.
